Fun with Debian 9
So I wanted to setup a UNMS controller now that the support is official in the non beta EdgeOS firmware.
The options are Ubuntu or Debian per the vendor. I hate Ubuntu so I chose Debian. Sadly the vendor page says Debian 8 (9.1 is current) or Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (just WTF seriously...).
So I did neither and installed Debian 9.1
During the install I unchecked all options because a glance at a google result of what "standard" server packages was told me that I did not want that.
Not doing that makes Debian an really tiny damned install because it includes almost nothing. Though I did notice
nanowas in there.
So I had to install
curlas pre reqs.
Which means I had to configure
sudofrom scratch too. That was unexpected, though simple.
After that I was able to run the UNMS install script.
More on that process in a later post.
